Re: Award286 clone

The 82C836 chipset is identical to this, but for 386 processors, though I'm struggling finding an award bios for it.

Re: PCem 10.1 crashes with Win2000 SP1 JPN

Why can't you use the boot disks or boot from CD in the 430VX?
Edit: the Oak OTI-067 card is too old to be supported and I think the 486SX is also not supported on Win2000, I think it requires a full 486DX as a minimum.

Win9x segfaults with Voodoo Recompiler

When the voodoo recompiler is enabled and I try to do some Direct3D tests like dxdiag, it segfaults with voodoo_x86_data() being at fault.
Note: I'm using the Voodoo1 drivers from 1999 for win9x.
Drivers: http://www.falconfly.de/voodoo1.htm 01 May 1999 ones.

Black screen with any official SVGA driver on OS/2 2.0

Well, I tried a gazillion of drivers specifically for OS/2 2.0 and for the emulated cards of PCem, in 16 color mode, they work (ET4000AX, TVGA8900D), but 256 results in blackness during boot and I remember that it worked on mame with the ET4000AX in 256 color mode.

ATI Mach64(gx) probable blitter issue

Under Windows 95 (but not in 3.1x or 98 or WinME) in 32bpp mode (all resolutions) this happens when trying to play some win3.1x games such as 4play:

Under all operating systems (even Windows 3.1 as well as Windows 9x), this results in a black screen that remains in a "stopped" state, that is, the bios cursor doesn't flash and doesn't output this resolution and note, this happens with all its supported color depths (8bpp and 16bpp).

Re: IBM XT - How to set up hard drive

you need 2.0.0 beta 3 of xtide for the IBM PC, XT and compatibles (though, not requested, 2.0.0 beta 3 should not be used for the PS/1, where you need 1.1.5 for it).

Re: Trident graphics (from downlods); display messed up

Well, an S3 Trio64 is a much better choice for displaying something useful on Windows 98/98SE, and the TVGA8900 is a video card, not a monitor, and limited to the resolution of 1024x768 at 256 colors at the highest possible. Voodoo Graphics is a separate 3D graphics card for existing 2D VGA cards, m...

Pretty much everything that has a "07" or "08" in the 0xX00 range in the one that doesn't work is replaced by "06" and "07" in this order in the one that doesn't black out.

Re: Windows 3.1 DOS Box VGA grabbing

I noticed that, at one point, in vdds3old.386 that Battler gave me (too), there's the virtual address of 0xfff78000, all other vdd 386 drivers have 0xffff8000, is this, maybe, the culprit? I'm not sure.
